Overview

Sun Lakes House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

YOU WON'T FIND A NICER HOME IN OAKWOOD! This is resort-style living with all the comforts of home. Watch golfers try to lower their handicaps from the comfort of your living room. Observe awe-inspiring sunsets from the spacious covered patio, complete with a fire pit for those 'chilly' Arizona evenings. Enjoy the oodles of amenities afforded all who come to Oakwood. You won't want to leave!

Ours is a charming 2,000 square foot single-family home located on the fourth fairway of the Sonoran course at Oakwood, a private, gated community in Sun Lakes. It is beautifully decorated with a Tuscan flair with warm, inviting colors and conveniences throughout. Relax in one of our matching recliners in the living room, and watch your favorite programs on our big screen HDTV with surround sound.

Curl up with a good book on the chaise lounge in the den. Watch HDTV on the loveseat or the king bed in the master bedroom. Take a nap on the double bed in the second bedroom or the day bed in the front bedroom. Do a little web surfing in the office. Better yet, unplug your computer and do your surfing from anywhere around the house (including the patio) -- the high-speed internet is wireless!

Whip up a fine meal in our full kitchen, or if you prefer outdoor cooking, pour yourself a refreshment and fire up the gas BBQ on the covered patio. Don't worry about getting too warm out there, the two outdoor ceiling fans will cool you off. When the meal is ready, you can eat on the patio or inside. The formal dining room seats 8, the informal breakfast nook seats 4, or you can grab a quick bite at the breakfast bar.

When you want to venture out of the house, Oakwood boasts plenty of things to keep you busy. You will have full access to both the Oakwood and Ironwood facilities, which feature beautiful clubhouses with amenities aplenty. In addition to 45 holes of golf, you can enjoy tennis courts, gigantic heated pools, spas, hot tubs, arts & crafts center, outdoor poolside restaurant & sports bar.

There are more than 100 organized activities -- just pick the ones you want! There are also miles of walking paths for those who enjoy strolling and physical exercise. You can also escape the boundaries of Sun Lakes and enjoy the multitude of activities in the greater Phoenix/Scottsdale area. If you're feeling adventurous, Tucson, Sedona, Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon are all a few hours away.

So what are you waiting for? THIS IS IT! Contact Bob or Cindy and sign up for your slice of paradise.

About Bob Banta

Bob and Cindy Banta live in Fort Collins CO with their two children.

Bob Banta purchased this house in 2009

Why Bob Banta chose Sun Lakes

We bought the home because we intend to retire to Sun Lakes. We have family there and we were attracted to Sun Lakes because of their many amenities and activities. We are looking forward to a life of leisure there after our kids have left the nest, but also loved the idea of sharing our home with others in the interim.

What makes this house unique

Sun Lakes offers so many activities that it's hard to imagine getting bored there. If that should ever happen, it's nice to venture outside the development and take advantage of everything the greater Phoenix/Scottsdale area has to offer. Shopping, restaurants, golf, tennis, water sports, even casinos are all a short drive away. The area lacks for nothing -- except cold weather!

Another enjoyable stay in this beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Another great vacation in this lovely home. Beautifully decorated, well equipped,great appliances ,good location very comfortable Relaxing on the patio ,enjoying the sunsets and waving at the golfers ,even though they are not in your face So much fun Seldom see a golf ball. Close to shopping ,casinos sight seeing and restaurants.

Can't say enough about the owners. Always available, friendly and accommodating. Keeping their guests happy seems to be of great concern to them. If they say they will do it Trust me. They will.

Ready for our third stay here next spring and can't wait.

An Exceptional Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent three months from January to March 2015, in this wonderful home. It is exceptionally equipped, well maintained, and sparkling clean. Loved the backyard overlooking the golf course and watching the rabbits, quails, birds...even lucky enough to see a roadrunner. BBQ and outdoor tables a plenty to enjoy. Close by the Oakwood facilities, we golfed, played tennis, and swam in the pools. Also loved walking in this beautiful community. Any questions are immediately answered by Bob and Cindy; they are very reliable to share feedback. We would highly recommend this property and are looking forward to visiting Arizona again next year.

Very, very nice and great location for our needs

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for the month of October while the house we bought (right down the street from us) was getting ready for occupancy. We sincerely appreciated the location as it allowed us to be at the house in a minute's notice for contractors, painters, etc. Admittedly, our reason for renting this house was not the same as most anyone else, but it worked out fantastically. The home is lovely. The cupboards were more than adequately supplied with paper products, cleaning products, kitchen cooking and eating supplies. The HDTVs in the master bedroom and living room (with DVRs) worked very well. Although we had our own electronic devices, there was a laptop and printer in the den which came in real handy as we had to print numerous pieces of correspondence and scan and forward many documents. The wifi signal was very strong including the porch where we spent a lot of time. We did not use the second bathroom and other two bedrooms, but they looked very bright and cheery. There were plenty of linens and a good washer and dryer. All appliances worked very well. The most favorable part of the stay were the communications we had with Bob, the owner. Even though he was in his home in Colorado when were were in his home in Arizona, he was very responsive to any questions/concerns we had. Since, at the time, he had not rented the house for the month of November, he was willing to rent it to us on a day by day basis if we had the need until we were ready to move into our home with the understanding that if he did get a renter, we would not be able to stay. As it turned out, he did get a last minute renter for the month of November, and we were not able to take advantage of renting for the few additional nights we needed. However, it was just the fact that he made the offer that was worth noting in this review. We would definitely recommend this home to anyone who wants to stay in a beautiful community. As I said, we were not the "typical" renter in the winter in the sunny southwest, but we would recommend this home.
